Yes, that CPU cooler will fit easily in the HAF 922. I have a HAF 912 which is slightly smaller and the same cooler, there's no problem.

A couple things about your build:
- I'd get a different PSU. I've heard mixed reviews of Antecs. I'd get this one: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
It's more efficient, modular, and from a very solid PSU brand.
- The GPU is very weak. Are you planning on gaming much with this PC?
- Get low-profile RAM to ensure that you won't have any problem with your CPU cooler. Here's the same RAM without the heat spreaders: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
